Thank you for your question.
I don't think so. As a species, we are as intelligent as we ever were - whch may not be saying much.
"The Gene Pool" denotes a generalization of sorts.
To say that intelligence is being phased out of the entire gene pool is erroneous. Now, breeding done within an already greatly diminished IQ community here and there? That is very possible.
I think what we see is a widening of the gap between the "haves" and "have nots". I can assure you there are plenty of extremely intelligent people out there, but they are, admittedly, in the minority. But this has always been the case.
The emergence of social media, particularly, has allowed for the greater majority of the "have nots" (and I am being polite) to be seen and heard, unfiltered and in full throat with, shall we say, disturbing frequency.
LOL!! I've got to laugh, this is a very old question being used by Terry Willis to advertise a site that will "write your essays for you." Does that answer the question?
Terry Willis for seems to suggest websites that may minimize the need for intelligence to function when it is necessary to put one's thoughts on paper.
If enough people allow others to think for them, perhaps evolution will minimize it.
Didn't find the answer you were looking for?
